While you could do this, I don't think it's a good idea.  The main
part of building libguestfs in Fedora is we run the whole test suite
on the appliance, thus ensuring it has a high chance of actually
working when downloaded by the end user.  We often find errors too --
for example only two days ago we ran across a bug in the upstream
'file' program.

Since it's a supermin appliance, distributing it is not an issue
because it's only a couple of megabytes compressed.

I leave it up to your discretion though.
